Postdoctoral Positions in Ocean, Atmosphere and Climate Dynamics
One or two postdoctoral positions in Ocean, Atmosphere and Climate Dynamics will be available at Yale University, Department of Geology and Geophysics (http://people.earth.yale.edu/profile/alexey-fedorov/about). Particular fields of research include ocean circulation, ocean-atmosphere interactions, the role of ocean in climate, climate variability, paleoclimate. Some of the topics include: El Niño and tropical climate in the past, present and future; biases in climate GCMs; stability of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation; oceanic and climate predictability; abrupt climate changes. The work will involve a combination of numerical modeling, analyses of observational, proxy and GCM data, and analytical approaches.
A PhD in physical oceanography, atmospheric sciences or related disciplines is required. Experience with oceanic or atmospheric general circulation models (GCM) is a big advantage. Funding is currently available for two to three years but can be extended in future.
Successful candidates can begin their program at Yale in the Fall of 2014 or Winter/Spring 2015. The applicants should email a CV, a statement of research interests, one reprint or preprint, and the names of three referees to Professor Alexey Fedorov (email@example.com; Subject: postdoctoral search). Review of applications will start August 1, 2014 and will continue until this position(s) is filled.
